    Limping, swollen leg with hard bump

    Hey my polish hen (1y/o). Has been limping for a while and we noticed her leg at the joint was swollen. We’ve been trying to keep her comfortable to heal but recently we noticed a growth/bump on the same leg but not by the joint. She doesn’t have this bump on her other leg. Any ideas what it is?

    3 months old... About when do they reach full size?

    I am totally new to chickens and my Dominiques are 3 months old now. I'm wondering, about when are they full grown and/or how large should I expect them to be?

    My partridge cochin has been keeping her distance from me for several days now, but still eating, drinking, and laying just fine.

    I noticed this morning that one of my 14 day old chicks has a bald spot to the left of it’s crop about the size of a dime. When I touch it the area that’s missing feathers is hard and I can feel the margins. Otherwise the chick is healthy and the other chick with it has no issues. Is this a growth?

    What is this GROWTH(??) on the turkey's CHEST :(

    This is on behalf of my sister. We are states away so I can't inspect on my own. She just noticed this. I'm not even sure WHAT it could be, it's under the turkey's chest. It seems to have randomly showed up within a couple of days because she hasn't noticed it before. She says it is "fused" to...

    What is it?

    I just reintegrated a female quail into an existing covey that contained her old friends and new offspring. She is still being very standoffish and hides all the time. She used to have an injury on the top of her beak by the eyes but I thought that had healed. However, she still appears to have...
